Tip for painting the lettering red - get a new washing up sponge and cut it into 1 inch strips. Spray the sponge with paint then dab it on the lettering. Much easier and neater than brush work.
Give the lettering a quick sand before painting,
Plastikote aluminium primer x 2 coats
Plastikote enamel red x 3 coats
Plastikote clear gloss x 2 coats
Don't rush between coats - I put my parts in the boiler cupboard overnight between each coat, so it took a week to do it but only 2 minutes each day. Result looks good, like factory fresh.
